Halloween with Baalatova and friends

 Hello dear Friends

Once every  Halloween student skeletons at the Ghost Academy get a day off to go home and ponder about continuing or staying on at the Academy.  

The first thing the Skellies have done is visit Baalatova.

Baalatova strolled with Solly and Kitty when the Skellies surprisingly arrived without previous notice.

Baalatova:  Is it the Skellies I see?

Baalatova: " Welcome friends! we really missed your company. Let's all sit down and listen to how you are, and how long will your leave from the Academy last."

Skella:  "Life at the Academy is not easy.  Lectures and homework. daily drills and exercises and separating the ladies from the gentlemen.  Chats between us are not allowed. Memorizing all the rules and regulations is the hardest of all.

Skelly:  "All the students received a difficult practical test to pass.  Each got an ancient remote abandoned house to haunt and scare away from the house anyone in. It had to be done without being exposed. We were supposed to go as temporarily invisible ghosts. 

Skelly: "Mine was an ancient large decaying house.  I passed the test.  I managed to scare a bunch of beer-drinking bikers who broke in and started going wild.

I floated out and started the engines of the parking bikes outside.  They all came running to see who was going to steal their bikes while I floated back to the house and broke all their bottles of beer. They couldn't understand how in this God-forsaken place anyone would dare mess up with them. They became so scared It was no longer fun for them to stay so they just drove away on their bikes."

Skella: "I almost got expelled from the Ghost Academy.".

Baalatova: "Why what happened?"

Skella: "Well, mine was an abandoned old decaying mansion.  A bunch of kids broke in carrying dry wood branches and started to light up a bonfire inside the house.  I was very scared that the house will catch fire and I'll be burned to death again, this time fatally turning into ashes.  The gust of wind caused by my panicked exit from the place increased the flame from the campfire frightening the kids who ran back to their homes. I was sure they discovered me and were chasing me. I barely reached the academy shamefacedly.

Luckily  I only got a reprimand. My action scared the kids out but I should have stayed on."

At this point, Baalatova who hardly ever smiles gave everybody a shock by bursting out laughing loudly making them all laugh along with her.

Baalatova: still laughing and holding her belly  "Just imagine little kids chasing you ha ha ha..."
Skelly: "Imagine what would have happened if it were the Bikers instead of the kids!" ha ha ha..."

Poor Skella:  "It's Halloween tonight, after all, please Baalatova, we came especially to ask if you'll agree to turn us into ghosts again for a few hours and take us haunting?"

Baalatova:  "Of course, my dears, and this time we'll take Solly and Kitty with us" 

Solly and Kitty together:  "Hooray!"

Baalatova to Solly and Kitty:  "You know kids, if you come as little ghosts you will not be able to ask for trick-or-treating"

Guess, dear readers, what they preferred.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN dear readers.  All who are celebrating have fun!

A blessed weekend to all my readers and friends.

  1. Great story and dialogues. Geneviève

  2. Ha ha! This was a super fun story, Drora! The skellies look adorable as ghosts and I loved to hear about their test hauntings! I think ghosts might be the only perfect way to scare off bikers! And poor Skella! I bet seeing that fire was triggering for her, and I hope Baalatova will write a note to her teacher explaining that a retest would be the proper way forward. Happy Halloween! Hope you enjoy the day!

  3. Ah, so good to see the Skellies visiting Baalatova and the little ones. But poor Skella... I feel with her. But I am also totally convinced that she will pass her next exam with AAA++++++++ and 5 additional bats on top! *smile* I bet this quintet will have plenty of fun while haunting in their ghost appearances. So good to know that Baalatova will keep an eye on Solly and Kitty.

    Thank you so much for another wonderful Halloween post, I have been looking forward to it and of course you did not disappoint! *LOL* An awesome tale... and the ghost photo is priceless. Happy Halloween!
